Some Photographs of That Day

Background information at Wikipedia:

Jamie Livingston (October 25, 1956 - October 25, 1997) was a New York-based photographer, film-maker and circus performer. Between March 31, 1979 and October 25, 1997, the day of his death, he took a single picture nearly every day with a Polaroid camera.

'runs on the Internet'

Distorte

There is this mid-point, I think, where one is not quite imaginative enough to write pure fiction, or even dress their life up as such, and yet not quite interesting enough to simply document their day-to-day. At this mid-point we find writers who simply half-ass both, never offering much clue as to whether we're reading invention, confession or something in between. Yes, this has become another one of those sites.

Gumbaby

The Gumbaby Project is an attempt to gather together a directory of comments posted on blogs (and guestbooks, and other inappropriate places) by people apparently led astray by search engines. Certain threads on some sites seem to attract confusion over and over again. People arrive at a blog, mistake the author for a celebrity, an expert, or an authority, and they begin talking as if that's who was listening.
